1. My soul for light and love had earnest longings,
Oh, how it longed for fellowship divine!
I sought it here and there,
I sought it ev'rywhere,
At last, thro' faith, the holy boon was mine.
I'm abiding, gracious Saviour,
I'm abiding in thy precious love today;
I'm abiding, yes, abiding
In thy love, thy precious love, today.
2. Oh, how enriching is this sacred treasure!
Enriching to this soul, this soul of mine;
There's nothing any where
Can with this love compare,
And I henceforth, forever, Lord, am thine.
3. Oh, yes, I rest, how blessed is the resting!
I rest today, I'm resting all the time;
"Come," echoes thro' the air,
"Come," and the resting share,
And Jesus will be yours as he is mine.
